Markoth is a Warrior Dream Boss in Hollow Knight. Bosses are special Enemies that feature their own arena, a large amount of health, and a variety of unique moves and abilities. You will need to perform multiple attacks such as using The Nail and Nail Arts along with the Spells and Abilities in order to defeat them. Some bosses are capable of entering into a state of stagger after landing a number of attacks on them.
As soon as you encounter a boss, its name will appear on the screen, the music will change into a boss battle theme, and usually, paths connecting the arena will close or will be blocked leaving you no choice but to face these devastating and unique foes.
Lingering dream of a fallen warrior. Only member of his forgotten tribe to take up a weapon.
May your efforts lead you somewhere worthy. - Markoth
- Kingdom's Edge
- Must have the Dream Nail
- Challenge his ghost upon talking to him.

Markoth's attacks are quite tricky, especially the barrage of nails. Having the Shade Cloak ability will help you dodge the projectiles if you are caught in a difficult situation. Since Markoth constantly flies and teleports around the arena, you can try to cling onto the walls to reach him and follow-up with ranged attacks using your spells. In conjunction with this, having the Snail Shaman paired with Spell Twister will be beneficial since it will maximize the overall effectiveness of the spells.
